WORKSHOPS AND DEMONSTRATIONS
It was my great pleasure to present several demonstrations to area art groups.
I shared my pastel landscape techniques at the February meeting for The Visual Arts of Prosper.
They were a terrific group and particularly enjoyed my sketchbooks. The Visual Arts of Texas,
the Denton art organization, featured my pastel demonstration at their monthly meeting.
The three-day workshop in pastel was the real joy for me. My extensive soft pastel working
methods were shared with the students as well as my plein air work for gathering research.
My Nature Journaling classes at North Haven Gardens continue on the second Tuesday of the month.
ROSE PAINTING DEMONSTRATION
The Dallas Rose Society marked their 70-year anniversary in October. DRS were the hosts for the
South Central District Rose Conference. I was privileged to be a part of that event by doing a presentation on painting roses.
The lecture on the society highlights over the years was a time capsule in Dallas history.
PASTEL SOCIETY OF THE SOUTHWEST
Thank you to everyone who visited the 2022 National Juried Exhibition at the Grapevine Convention and Visitors
Bureau during the month of October. I had two paintings in the exhibition selected by our juror Sally Strand.
Anglers Serenity, image at right, won the Award of First Award of Merit. Our sponsors are greatly appreciated.
In my case H.K. Holbein Art Materials – just love the new pastel set I won.

PAINTING WITH GOUACHE
A sincere thanks to the 23 students who enrolled in my One-Day GOUACHE class with
Southwestern Watercolor Society. We had a grand time at Gallery Pure, located in the Shops at Willow Bend.
I was honored to have been asked to present this class utilizing this vibrant medium.
I am delighted that the boxed set of Sympathy Cards is again offered by Gracefully Yours.
These beautifully written comfort cards feature four of my pastel paintings.
The four designs with full-color interior include a touch of grace-filled Scripture to
bring peace to the recipient. Includes 12 cards with four unique designs.
